BTAC George T Stagg Release Year "Cheat Sheet"

Posted by Ilya Dorfman on

Bourbon nerds (like us) want to be sure which year they are buying, just like vintage wine. Below is the quick cheat sheet you can use to make sure the bottle of George T Stagg you are buying is the correct release year - courtesy of one of our customers, no less!. 

Each year of the Stagg release is a different proof as they are all barrel proof which undergoes different evaporation rates as they age. Below are the most recent releases and proofs:

Year Proof Age
2002 137.6 15 yr
2003 142.7 15 yr
2004 129 15 yr
2005 Spring Lot A: Kentucky only 130.9 15 yr
2005 Spring Lot B: Nationwide 131.8 15 yr
2005 Fall 141.2 15 yr
2006 140.6 15 yr
2007 144.8 15 yr
2008 141.8 15 yr
2009 141.4 16 yr
2010 143.0 17 yr
2011 142.6 18 yr
2012 142.8 17 yr
2013 128.2 16 yr
2014 138.1 16 yr
2015 138.2 15 yr
2016 144.1 15 yr
2017 129.2 15 yr
2018 124.9 15 yr
2019 116.9 15 yr
2020 130.4 15 yr

If you are wondering why there are not similar tables dedicated to the BTAC Eagle Rare 17 or Sazerac 18 releases, the answer is pretty simple.

The Eagle Rare 17 was introduced in 2000 and has been released every year since. It was bottled at 90 proof until 2018, when it was changed to 101 proof going forward. As the name implies, the age is always 17 years. 

The Sazerac 18 is always 18 years and always is bottled at 90 proof. 

Cheers!
